HSCC 2013 Donington

Postby chamois93 » Wed Feb 27, 2013 8:30 pm

The new season kicks at Donington soon, looking forward to the opening race and the new season. Understand there's some interesting developments over the winter plus at least one new team. Unfortunately I'll not be racing as my car is still in bits.. But am hoping to make Cadwell. Who's already entered?

The last time I went to Donington a friend had to rush home as his wife had gone into labour. The daughter that was born that day now has two children of her own! So what are the best viewing places?

A little bit of video from today.

The track was still a bit slippy from the earlier bad weather. But it was dry for the race which was great for us spectators. There was quite a few Impers around. It was good to catch up with people. Also good to see race Imps running orange grills.

Great to catch up with all the Hillman fans today at Donington, i really enjoyed my race despite getting left behind by an unbelivably quick David Heale and Simon benoy!
Practice was good with a dry line appearing half way through the 20 minute session, this was good as i was struggling for grip on the wet stuff.
The race was a differant story staying wet for the duration, i am uploading the in car video for you to have a laugh at on you tube, it says 158 minutes remaining on the upload.
I think i will name it "Donington on plastic tyres" you will understand when you watch it.
Hopefully i will have the 1150 in for thruxton in 2 weeks time, cant wait hopefully Mr Benoy will sort David out if i am still playin rallycross ha ha !
lookin forward to reading the unbiased race report Chris :D

Great day yesterday, good to catchup with everyone... and as ever the touring cars imps n' mini's making the day... watching OAP97 on the 1st lap reminded me of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8p7xiZBpdl4 but don't tell him, else we'll never hear the end of it (got any onboard footage??)... looking forward to Thurxton, hopefully we'll see more Imps back on the grid...
